View Full Version : Starting to get the noise...

Starting to get the noise on a stock motor can.

Is it a result of the bushing (that should be replaced with a BB) getting worn down? It only makes the sound when it's "spooling down", Never under acceleration.

I mean, it's no big issue because I have a spare motor, but I'd like to know if it could be solved by putting in BB's or something.

It just may be solved, or rather relieved with a tiny drop of gun oil to each end of the motor.
I used to have the "squeal" in my 1st stock can. Replaced it with an X-speed and didn't think any more of it.
Just recently I needed a "stock" mini-z to race with obeesi & co. Just 2 drops of oil and it was as good as new. :)

and while you're at it, give it a good spray of contact cleaner before the oil to clean out funk from the can. just remember to take out the motor. some contact cleaners eats plastic so be carefull:rolleyes:

Local Hobby stores. It may be called Plus 3 Electric Motor Cleaner. Contact Cleaner Works too.
